Darren Urban, of the East Valley Tribune, reports Arizona Cardinals vice president of football operations Rod Graves was "pretty confident" negotiations with QB Matt Leinart's agent, Tom Condon, would resume soon. "We're hung up on a lot of issues. It's time to go home," Condon told ESPN.com after talks stalled Saturday, July 29. One issue is believed to be the length of the contract, with the team wanting a six-year deal and Leinart's camp wanting a five-year contract. Graves said, "We feel that with the ninth and 11th picks in, we should be able to carve out a deal."
